Cheers. That helped.
Adding debug output to free and malloc showed exactly that. The
erroneous free is occurring in rtems_disk_io_done(). It's freeing a 256
byte block of memory then calling free with the previously freed address
+ 8 - oops!
The reason why it got there because I hadn't configured
CONFIGURE_MAXIMUM_MESSAGE_QUEUES and things were being tidied up.
I'll see if I can deduce why it's freeing memory that it didn't allocate
